Glam Slam: Skin Trends For 2011

Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Nicole Kidman are a few of the stars showing off their gorgeous complexions on the Golden Globes red carpet.

Looking to take better care of your skin in 2011? Skincare maven Jan Marini, whose celeb clients include Naomi Watts, Cher and Kathy Najimy, shares the new technologies and skincare ingredients to look out for this year.

Non-Hydroquinone Lightening Technology
Recent medical studies have determined that discoloration from melasma and cumulative sun exposure is perceived as being more aging than lines and wrinkles. New dermatology in 2011 will focus on dramatically effective and aggressive combination of lightening, brightening and anti-aging agents minus side effects or long-term complications, such as products like my Enlighten Plus. Think brighter, smoother, more even tones and light reflective skin.

Treating Adult Acne and Aging Simultaneously
Occasional breakouts to more persistent acne is an epidemic among adult females in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and beyond. The dilemma is how to achieve consistently clear, glowing skin without sacrificing products that focus on skin rejuvenation. In 2011, we will see powerful acne solutions that are less or non-irritating and are combined with equally aggressive anti-aging technology. The results are consistently clear, healthy looking skin that also looks noticeably younger, more hydrated and radiant.

Growth Factors and Peptides
Truly efficacious topical agents are evolving at an amazingly rapid pace. Two promising contenders are specific growth factors and targeted peptides. These super stars can assist in rebuilding aging skin and enhancing and orchestrating certain critical functions related to healthier younger looking skin. Think real solutions, not just “hope in a jar.” One of the products from my line that Cher loves is Age Intervention Regeneration Booster.

Resveratrol
This molecule extracted from red wine is being touted as a future revolutionary oral drug designed to reverse many aging conditions and extend human life span. Topical use of Resveratrol is demonstrating extraordinary skin rejuvenation benefits. The challenge is getting this large molecule to penetrate. An occlusive mask along with penetrating enhancers, peptides, and antioxidants is proving to address multiple aging concerns with remarkable cumulative benefits.

Non-Abrasive Skin Resurfacing
A primary trend is less makeup and more perfected, polished facial skin. High-Def and Blu-ray emphasize even minimal skin flaws and can make foundation and cover-up look artificial and overdone. By strategically formulating synergistic combinations of resurfacing acids, we can non-abrasively transform the surface of the skin to look “air brushed” and flawlessly smooth and reflective. Another favorite of Cher’s is the Jan Marini Bioglycolic Bioclear Lotion or Cream.
